Kokeb Ethiopian Restaurant

Ethiopian
The consummate chef/hostess/waitress/owner of Kokeb Ethiopian Cuisine – exotically named Getenesh – must be secretly wearing a cape under her clothes as she runs this restaurant like a superhero. Treating every customer like a house guest, Getenesh runs an immaculate eatery on London's Roman Way, and her home-cooking is a wholesome and adventurous affair. The cosy and colourful dining room at Kokeb is filled with African textiles and lively music, and the restaurant is also conveniently close to the Emirates Stadium and Caledonian Road station, making it a good place for pre-game feeds. Don't miss the chicken cooked in a light tomato sauce with coriander and onions, the fresh injera bread and the huge portions of chocolate sponge cake.

    Although we arrived late due to challenges finding Kokeb, otherwise we loved it - the ambience is simple, the food is authentic and delicious, and the owner is absolutely lovely.

    Nice decor in a cosy restaurant, the hostess was really lovely and explained about the dishes well. Excellent njera and really tasty dishes. The vegetable dishes were really good so an option for vegetarians.

    It's like a communal dining experience without actually being one. Super friendly atmosphere and great food.

    The owner was friendly and talked us through the menu as it was our first experience. It is clean, quiet and well kept. We enjoyed it and will be back again.

    Realky surprised to find this place just off Cally Road! Getenesh was friendly and welcoming from the start, making sure we were fed in time for our show at theatre. We let her pick a selection of dishes for us and everything was outstanding (and such good value). How she does everything alone is a mystery! Will definitely be back.
